Blackstar HT Club 40 MKII Electric Guitar Amp Combo


Equipped with 2 channels and 4 footswitchable voices the HT Club 40 MkII is the ideal gigging valve amp for club sized venues. The 40W EL34 driven power amplifier has groundbreaking clean punch and dynamics with expanded tone controls that will easily cut through in a full band situation. Switching to the amazing ISF equipped overdrive channel accesses a further two modes – ‘classic crunch’ and ‘super saturated lead’. The Power Reduction feature allows further flexibility, by allowing the guitarist to attenuate to 10 percent of the 40 watts of power, also making the HT Club 40 MkII perfect for the home and studio use.

This HT Venue MkII is a highly versatile amplifier suited to a wide range of playing

styles and situations.

The Clean Channel has two voices; one based on a classic American circuit and

the other based on a classic British tone. The Voice switch reconfigures the preamp

voicing, EQ and valve gain structure, as well as the power amplifier damping. This

produces a clean, bright and tight but solid bass response for the American tone

and a highly responsive ‘chime’ with looser bottom for the British tone that can be

pushed into a midrange overdrive when driven hard. The Voice setting can also be

selected via footcontroller.

The HT Stage MkII has two Overdrive channels which share a common EQ section

and, like the Clean Channel, each of the Overdrive channels has a Voice switch

which allows the character of each channel to be changed, providing a broad

palette of overdriven tones.

As with the Clean Channel, each of these voices can also be selected by

Foot controller. When switching between channels, the amplifier will recall the specific

Voice setting last used on that channel.

The Overdrive channels are characterised by a tone which is high in gain, but avoids

any of the detached top-end ‘fizz’ often found in other designs. This is a result of

unique preamplifier and power amplifier shaping techniques, which also benefit the

player in the way the overdrives clean up beautifully as the guitar volume is reduced.

Even at the most extreme settings, the Overdrive channels remain natural sounding.

The patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) control is unique to Blackstar Amplification

and represents a major step forward in tone shaping flexibility. The ISF control shifts

the response of the three control tone stack between, a US type response at one

end, and at the other, a UK type response. Importantly, in between the two extremes

lie an infinite number of alternative tone choices that would be otherwise unavailable.

The amplifier features naturally sounding digital reverb that can be adjusted via

the Reverb control on the front panel or turned on and off via the optional 5-way

footcontroller. A switch on the rear panel selects between ‘Dark’ and ‘Light’. The

Dark setting is based on a room reverb and the Light setting is based on a plate


A Power Switch is provided on the front panel to switch the amplifier between full

power and 10% power. This means that the full tonal depth of the EL34 power

stage can be enjoyed at any volume, retaining the distinctive sound of power valves

working hard.

A USB connector allows for sending up to 4 channels of the guitar signal (dry,

preamp out and stereo emulated out) into a computer for recording purposes.

Two further outputs on the rear, a stereo jack socket and balanced XLR, also allow

the speaker emulated signal(s) to be connected to external devices for practicing,

recording or live use.
